Spring Mill Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It doesn't feel good to be dropping $6.50 on a bag of 5 cookies, but it sure feels good to be eating them! The cookies I'm talking about are Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies from Spring Mill Bread.

Spring Mill Bread Co. is one of my favorite sources of Giant Cookies, and had been for many years before I started this blog theme. They are a local company, so if you don't live around DC, you will sadly be deprived of their delectable treats, but if you come to the capital for a visit, you should definitely give them a try. As a bonus, most of their locations are inside Mom's Organic Market stores, MOM being another great local company that you must experience while you're in town!

But enough evangelizing my favorite small businesses, let's talk about cookies!

You'll notice that only four cookies appear in this photo of cookies which
ostensibly are sold in a 5-pack. Well, this discrepancy reflects the author's
raging need to consume cookies as soon as they arrive in her house.
These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies always hit the spot. In addition to being wonderfully chewy, with just the right amount of oatmeal for texture, they are studded with bits of chocolate for an addictive flavor! This company makes oatmeal raisin cookies, too, and they surprisingly make oatmeal raisin cookies taste almost desirable!

You can buy a 5-pack of these cookies for $6.50, which feels like a lot, until you do the math and realize you're only paying 1.45¢ a gram—definitely on the cheaper end of the Giant Cookie spectrum. Of course, if you buy them individually, they're a little bit more, but what kind of crazy person wants only one cookie anyway!?

The Bottom Line:
Taste: 5 stars
Texture: 5 stars
Price: 4 stars
